What can I study on my commute?

cikowskimcikowskim Core Member

I'm studying while working full-time. I take the train to work and it's about 35 minutes both ways. Any recommendations on what I can do during this time?

I'm usually standing on a full train so writing anything is out of the question, but anything I could read or listen to that could help?

    When I had my commute I would practice reading comp. Find interesting and/or completely uninteresting articles and just practice going paragraph by paragraph and really comprehending. Honestly its good practice learning how to tune everything else out during the commute

    1. Do LSAT
    If you don't want to go all in and answer questions on your commute, you can still practice. Some examples:
    - LR question skills practice- focus on identifying premises and conclusion, type of flaws in the argument
    - read RCpassage- 35 minutes is enough time to read a passage (identify main point, structure, viewpoints) and do the main point question
    2. Read
    -core curriculum and their discussions, you can learn a lot from comments left by others, focus on areas you struggle with
    -outside nonfiction reading material (books/articles), make reading a habit, build up your schema in the main RC topics (law, social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities), I like to focus on the areas I find more challenging to read
    -LSAT blogs- 7Sage, Powerscore, Manhattan Prep
    3. Listen to LSAT Podcasts.
    This is my favorite commute activity. I follow several LSAT podasts.
    My top 3:
    -JD LSAT & Admissions
    4. Review notes and wrong answer journal

    There are many other things you can do. As you go further along in your studies, you'll come up with more ideas. I hope this list can help you get started. Good luck!

    I usually make my own recordings on my phone. I have recordings of how to negate conditional statements, for example, "all dogs have four legs." (answer: some dogs do not have four legs or at least one dog doesn't have four legs). I record the flaws (examples and explanations). These are some of the things you could listen to on your commute.
